    so I really like how the new LTZ handles look with their color matched inserts. Unfortunately they aren’t the same so I can’t swap them out to my older Tahoe. I came up with a decent alternative. I bought some Avery pearl white vinyl and added my own “inserts” to my chrome handles. I’m pretty stoked on how they came out.

    Wow that looks awesome! I love the look! I’d love to do a similar look on my NBS handles. That would be cool.

    let us know how that holds up after a while of freeway driving and car washes, if it stays on you might have a winner

    Nice! Color-matched kinda downgrades the style and straight chrome is kinda 90s-early 2000s blingy. This has a classy and current appeal.

    Great idea. I was thinking about replacing my chrome handles with color-matched ones. But it's a bunch of work to do. I didn't think vinyl would work. But this has me thinking of trying it with mine. Thanks for sharing.

    Someone needs to make a vinyl decal kit in different colors for these.

    I'll buy a carbon black set!
